Best Android phones 2017 in Nigeria

Have you been wondering what kind of phone to buy in 2018? Well, here’s our very own top eight quick list of the best Android phones 2017 in Nigeria. We judge by camera performance, fast processors and super cool apps. Get your wallets ready fa.

#1 – Samsung Galaxy S8, S8+

OS: Android Nougat
CPU: Snapdragon 835
Storage: 64GB
Battery: 3,000mAh
Rear camera: 12MP
Front camera: 8MP

The S8 is the first standard Galaxy S phone (as in, not an Edge or Edge Plus) to have curved sides and the Edge display. You can use it as a kind of speed dial for your frequent apps and contacts, news headlines and so on, which you can call up from any screen (and tweak the tab location so it’s easy for you to grab). I think it’s definitely up there way above the rest of the phones on this list. The only competition for this phone is the iPhone X, but thank goodness this list is for android phones. Lol.

Check out our full review of the S8 here.

Price in Nigeria: ₦ 225,000.

#2 – Google Pixel 2 XL

Google Pixel 2 is dope. XL is doper. Damn!

Android Oreo
CPU: Snapdragon 835
Storage: 64/128GB
Battery: 2,700mAh
Rear camera: 12.2MP
Front camera: 8MP

Its 12.2MP rear-facing camera reaches new heights in mobile photography in terms of low-light captures and gorgeous portraits. It’s a cowboy’s best friend thanks to its quick draw-friendly nature that captures sharp images without the need to remain still.

If you want a smartphone to fawn over and make your friends jealous with, you won’t want the Pixel 2. But it’s faster than the Galaxy S8 and takes better photos. It delivers the best overall camera and software experience on any Android smartphone to date.

Price in Nigeria: ₦ 442,799. (Chai.)

#3 – HTC U11

I’m a die hard HTC Fan. Just to be clear. lol.

OS: Android 7.1 Nougat
CPU: Snapdragon 835
Storage: 64GB/128GB
Battery: 3000mAh
Rear camera: 12MP
Front camera: 16MP

The HTC U11 is a wildly impressive phone – in a sea of wildly impressive phones. – Techradar. Honestly, you’ll only feel this if you’re an HTC fan, otherwise, just go for the Samsung.

Price in Nigeria: ₦ 238, 599. (Chai.)

#4 – LG v30

OS: Android Nougat 7.1
CPU: Snapdragon 835
Storage: 64GB w/ microSD
Battery: 3,300mAh
Rear camera: 16/13MP
Front camera: 5MP

The LG V30 is a rock-solid alternative to Samsung’s Galaxy S8 Plus and the Google Pixel 2 XL. If it fits your hands and your photographic needs, you won’t be disappointed.

“The LG V30 is a confident step forward, not just for LG’s experimental smartphone branch, but for its flagship devices in general. Simply put, this is LG’s best in recent memory and as a result, it’s also one of 2017’s best smartphones.” – TR

Price in Nigeria: ₦ 287, 799. 

#5 – Tecno Phantom 8

This has gotta be good, and it is!

Storage: 64GB Storage with support for memory card up to 256GB
Camera: 12MP + 13MP Dual Rear Camera and 20MP Front Camera
Battery: 3500 mAh Battery

Number 5 on our list of the best Android phones 2017 in Nigeria, we have our very own Nigerian Tecno! Well…I have never owned a phone made by Nigerians, so you should know it has to be very good to make this list.

Tecno Phantom 8 was unveiled in Dubai with good camera specifications, it uses a dual back camera setup, combining both 12 megapixels and 13 megapixels cameras. 20 megapixels camera sits upfront with a LED flash.

Price in Nigeria: ₦ 127, 000

CPU: Snapdragon 835
Storage: 64GB/128GB
Battery: 3,300mAh
Rear camera: 16MP + 20MP
Front camera: 16MP

While there are a few small compromises to consider – no QHD display, stereo speakers, expandable storage or standout camera – the OnePlus 5T represents some of the best value for money in the market. You won’t be disappointed.

The OnePlus 5T is a superb, affordable phone for new buyers, despite only minor changes from the OnePlus 5.

Great phone.

Price in Nigeria: ₦ 252, 099

We are quickly coming to the end of our Best Android phones 2017 in Nigeria, so hold on tight as the race gets tight!

#7 – Huawei Mate 10 Pro

Processor: 1.8GHz octa-core
Front Camera: 8-megapixel
OS: Android 8.0
Storage: 64GB
Rear Camera: 20-megapixel
Battery Capacity: 4000mAh

Not only is the Huawei Mate 10 Pro the most impressive device we’ve seen from Huawei to date, it’s also one of the most impressive flagships currently on the market, undercutting the competition while offering more in some key areas.

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro has all the features one would expect from the latest high-end flagship smartphones on the market. – Android Authority

Price in Nigeria: ₦ 312, 699

#8 – Samsung Galaxy Note 8


OS: Android 7.1 Nougat CPU: Snapdragon 835 RAM: 6GB/8GB
Storage: 64GB w/ microSD Battery: 3,300mAh
Rear Camera: 12MP + 12MP
Front Camera: 8MP

Yeah, I’m not hallucinating, lol. The reason this is last on my list is because of the insane price. Otherwise, this is not only the best phone for 2017, but also for 2018! Damn! It’s the best really big phone you can buy, if you can handle the enormous size and equally huge price. :p

An expensive phone, the Note 8 has more features than most people will need. Samsung’s portrait mode can be finicky. The poorly placed fingerprint reader repeats the Galaxy S8’s worst design flaw. – CNET

Price in Nigeria: ₦ 302, 000

Finally, whew! This was to be a top ten list of Best Android phones 2017 in Nigeria, but it was too cliche. There are a lot of phones, but few good ones, so we stop at 8!

I’ll definitely be changing my HTC soon!
